Pray for Unity in the Spirit. Pray that we will all have a similar desire to see God’s will done through and in HMC. Pray against satan’s tricks being used in our midst e.g hurts, anger, unforgiveness. Pray that we would keep our eyes on God’s leading and trust Him to sort out the things we don’t understand.
Pray that HMC stands fast in the Lord. Pray that our HMC family will be rooted and firm in our faith. Pray that we will grow in our knowledge of the Bible and our trust in God, so that false teaching and subtle sins cannot get a grip on our minds. Pray that the Holy Spirit be welcomed among us and His rebuke received as an act of love.
Pray for our G2G Groups. Pray that our leaders live Godly lives. Pray that they take great care with God’s Word, and that the hearts of those in the groups would be fertile soil for that Word.
Pray that we would learn to seek God with ALL of our heart, soul, mind and strength. Pray for a renewed hunger for His presence in our lives.
Pray that we would hunger and thirst for the things of God—for righteousness. Pray that God would confront our complacency and somehow stir an intense desire in us to draw closer to Him.
Pray for Good to Prevail over Evil. Pray for protection for our HMC church body from the attacks of the enemy. Help us be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves as we deal with spiritual forces around us. Show us how to test every spirit to see if it is from God. Help us recognize the enemy’s counterfeits and schemes so that he won’t outwit us.
Pray for our Young at Heart leaders and members. Pray that we would be wise enough to tap into their wisdom and that they would be encouraged to share. Pray that whether strong and active or increasingly frail, their lives would be a testimony of the faithfulness of God. Pray for the measureless honour that one of them would take up the challenge of praying by name for you on a regular basis. Pray that we would find ways to express our respect and our love to them.
Pray for the courage to surrender our will to God for ourselves and for our church. We live in a very independent culture. Surrender, even to God, feels foreign to us.
Pray for our Young Adults and Young Families. Pray for the strength and courage to hang on during tough times in their marriages. Pray for purity in a world that promotes sex without boundaries. Pray for wisdom as they enter the world of parenting.
Pray that our Children and Youth would get excited about prayer. Pray that their humble trust in God would become a challenge to us to pray and to trust more.
